iPad 3 or HD

The new iPad will be released tomorrow and it should have some interesting specs. What I'm most curious about is what sort of LTE connectivity will it have? With the iPhone coming out later this year, what the iPad has will sure to be included with the iPhone.

 

Quote Phone Arena said:

"Where things start getting interesting is with the connectivity. According to the sources for The Verge, we could see three different versions of the tablet introduced tomorrow. Verizon and AT&T will each get their own LTE model, the first mobile devices from the manufacturer to offer LTE support, and there will be a 3G variant with both a CDMA and HSPA radio similar to what is in the Apple iPhone 4S. Although LTE chips from Qualcomm can also run on 3G bands, Apple might have had a financial reason to separate these models."

I hope they get really innovative with this model. Hopefully do something crazy like have a 4x4 grid of icons on it.

 

You know, something brand new like that to justify buying a new one.

I heard it is going to be called the ipad2s

That doesn't surprise me! Put an "S" on it and call it new! lmao

 

Woohoo! New screen and more RAM I'm excited! Not!

 

This is the year of the quad core! If it doesn't have one I won't be impressed!

 

Lame apple very lame!

It is not going to be anything new for tech. Apple is always behind in their products. Look at the past. Iphones 3.5inch screen with no 4g. Let's even go back to the beginning. Original iphone was edge only even though all the other phones in the past 6 months have been 3g phones. icloud stuff comes out when it was even available on winmo 6.0 years before.

 

Crazy if you really sit and think about it.

Yes, I will be surprised if this only comes with a dual-core, while their talking about putting a quad-core in the iPhone this fall.

 

guess you were surprised today then? lol

 

Still a lil dual-core chip there....though they did up the GPU to quad-core which was interesting move by far...

 

Still waiting on anandtech to do a full breakdown on the tech specs of the chips used here and how they are incorporating LTE modems and such.

So far heres their speculation to a tiny amount...

Makes sense to NOT go full blown quad-core though as even 32nm chips for it are not fully ready yet and doing a 42nm quad core would not be ideal really as it wouldn't give them much to improve upon like they are going to be able to do so now in the future.

The disappointing part is the lack of a Sprint iPad, even if only 3G.

 

The other thing I'm surprised about is the inclusion of DC-HSDPA. If anyone knows more about this upgrade to HSPA, please explain it in layman's terms, because I'm confused from reading the Wikipedia article.

I just read the specs and it's pretty much spot on what I figured. No innovation, a step behind in the rest of the world. Slowly day by day the iFan club is realizing they are just getting milked like the cows on a farm. I do have to give a tip of the hat to their marketing team at such a great job of gathering all the cattle and brainwashing them to go into the stable for a big milking year after year with no real results. I can see it now... iPad 2013, upgrade both cameras to 2012 specs, upgrade to quad-core CPU like everything else is going in 2012, and get rid of the physical button like others did in 2010, the cattle's utters will be dripping wet in 2013 waiting as all the cattle wait in line for their milking. Even the news is having a hard time saying what is so new about this new ipad.

To the true iFan "a magical experience!"

 

I'm so glad I don't have money right now. But hopefully the next iPhone will have LTE that even works on Sprint. And digiblur, very interesting anecdote. But I still prefer my MacBook Pro over iDevices, so I'm not drug on too much by this whole iDevice craze.

I love to bash but to each and their own. A coworker just spent over $1500 on the new ipad stuff. Wow... you've got to be kidding. I would have a fat laptop with a keybord and not just a big crippled locked down iphone.

My next MacBook Pro will cost me close to $1500, but that price for iPad stuff is just too much. For that price I have to have a full computer setup.

Pfft...

The specs of the new Asus transformer infinity

Has the new IPad blown out of the water already

 

How long will apple rehash this stupid crap?

They can't even think up a new name!

 

They at very least could have put as S on it!

Euphorian, They are just bringing the iPad into line with all their other product lines. Take the MacBook pro for example. It has been called MacBook Pro since it was released in 2006.

The info in parentheses indicates model information by release date, and is not part of the actual name.

Apple did it again in my opinion. This was just a refreshed iPad 2 like the iPhone 4S. Except for some quality enhancements, nothing really innovative, but the "Apple magic" worked as always and it will sell like hotcakes. Agree, it should have been called the iPad S.

Like selling ice to an Eskimo.

 

Lol true! true!

Dont people ever watch youtube to know that Android has Apple under wraps?

All the comparisons are there! They just don't want to here it and are close minded

Steve Wozniak has even said Android has "Leaped" ahead of apple

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
